Eric, Letty and Flamingo
Feel at home on your own private yacht on one of three identical 20-passenger vessels operated by the award-winning Ecoventura (see below). Accommodation spanning three decks includes 10 double cabins with views of the sea. The cabins have polished teak interiors and are appointed with two twin lower beds or one double bed (Iguana deck cabins have an additional bed so can be sold for triple occupancy), air-conditioning and a private bathroom with shower. The public areas include a dining room, well stocked bar, conference area and library, and a spacious partially-shaded sundeck with loungers and two observation points for scanning the horizon. The crew is passionate about personal service and home-cooked, healthy meals featuring local and organic ingredients, with both international and Ecuadorian specialities created by the yacht's experienced chefs. Enjoy a flexible variety of activities including guided nature walks, wildlife photography, birdwatching, snorkelling, kayaking, zodiac rides, whale watching and stargazing. On shore excursions there is a maximum of 10 guests per naturalist guide to ensure intimate, up-close wildlife encounters.
